International Centre for Inner Peace and Happiness

The Centre was recently formed to promote meditation and the teachings of Buddha. We liaise with worldwide Buddhist societies and Interfaith Religious Organisations to promote tolerance to all schools of Buddhist thought as well as to other religious faiths. The Centre fosters inter-religious harmony, mutual understanding and maintains an environment of respect and peace.

This society is led by Ven. Bodhicitta, a Sri Lankan born Buddhist nun. Our society is in its infancy and the services we provide are free for the general public regardless of their origin, race or religion. This society is managed by the generosity of people who value our service.

Aims and Objectives

  1. To foster the teachings and the practice of the Buddha Dhamma, and the practice of meditation with an emphasis on the good life and the mindful life.
  2. To disseminate through our religious and educational programmes the basic values of tolerance and interconnectedness in reaching out to other schools of Buddhism and other religious, ethnic and cultural groups.
  3. To develop concrete projects that would enhance the health and psychological well-being of our community. As in the world in which we live, ‘stress’ continues to exact a toll on everyday life, we are increasingly turning to ancient meditative methods. These techniques of mindfulness practice need to be integrated in to any counseling program.
  4. To focus attention on the role of families in helping to build up a youth culture and develop a ‘youth forum’ for a dialogue with young people.
  5. To encourage members and their friends to engage in social and charity projects to assist those in need in the community.
